British boxers Muhammad Ali and Peter McGrail claimed bronze medals on day nine of the Youth Olympics in Nanjing.

Both shrugged off defeats - to respective reigning world junior champions - in their semi-finals to finish on the podium in China.

Ali beat Indian Gaurav Solanki in the -52kg division, and McGrail beat Salem Tamma of Algeria in their -56kg bout.

Team-mate Viddal Riley missed out on a -81kg medal, losing 2-1 to Narek Manasyan of Armenia.

It means Team GB now have 23 medals with two days of competition remaining in Nanjing - far exceeding their total of nine from the inaugural Youth Olympics in 2010.

Ali, 18, became a world junior silver medallist earlier this year and says he is only now beginning to get used to the scrutiny that comes with success - and his famous name.

"I used to hate all of the attention but now I'm enjoying it and just want to keep going out there and winning," he told BBC Sport.

McGrail, 18, who suffered a controversial split-decision loss on Sunday, admitted his third-place finish was bittersweet.

"I came for the gold medal, but to be on the podium is still a huge honour," he said.

"I don't know if Rio [2016 Olympics] will come too soon as I'm still a junior, but I will become a senior before then and can't wait to go to another Games."

On the penultimate day of competition British archer Bradley Denny will look to contest for a medal in the men's individual competition.

Modern pentathlon silver medallist Francesca Summers will also return for the mixed-team event and compete alongside international competitors for a further medal.
